Saab, a Swedish defense and security company, officially inaugurated the location of its new Carl-Gustaf® manufacturing facility in Jhajjar, Haryana, India, on Monday. The groundbreaking ceremony was attended by Håkan Jevrell, State Secretary for International Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade, Jan Thesleff, Sweden’s Ambassador to India, Mats Palmberg, Chairman & Managing Director of Saab India, and Görgen Johansson, Head of Saab’s Business Area Dynamics.

This marks a significant milestone in Saab’s long-standing collaboration with India, which began in 1976. The new facility, built under the 100% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) route, will be the first of its kind for Carl-Gustaf production.

The facility will utilize cutting-edge technologies, including the latest sighting technology and advanced carbon fiber winding, to manufacture the Carl-Gustaf M4 system specifically for the Indian armed forces. Additionally, it has the potential to produce components for other users’ systems, with exports first going to Sweden and then to other customers, following India’s export policy and relevant end-user agreements.

This project signifies Saab’s commitment to deepening its partnership with India and supporting the country’s defense needs with advanced technology and local manufacturing capabilities.
